Day one

Fly to Nice and transfer to Cannes. After check-in you're free to explore. Soak up the elegant atmosphere as you stroll along La Croisette.

Day two

Today's optional half-day excursion takes you into the Esterel hills, the Riviera's hinterland of hilltop villages and medieval towns, to Grasse, renowned as the 'perfume capital of the world'. Walk the jumbled streets of its old town, and visit the famed perfume factories. In the afternoon, sit back and enjoy our optional boat trip from Cannes to the nearby Ile Sainte-Marguerite, the largest of the Lerins islands.

Day three

Rest and relax today, or join our optional full-day excursion along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco, the exclusive Monte Carlo, 'playground to the stars'. Try your luck in the famous Casino, wander the harbour, with its array of luxurious yachts, and catch a glimpse of the grand Palais Princier.

Day four

Today's included full-day excursion takes us first to fashionable St Raphael. Originally a fishing village, this is an ideal place to enjoy a simple lunch, perhaps the catch of the day or traditional bouillabaisse (fish stew), before we continue, past the great Roman town of Frejus, to St Tropez. Wander along the harbour, where the yachts and motor yachts - some merely large, others simply enormous - tie up, and sit at a pavement cafe to 'people watch' in this port made famous by the original 1960s jet set.

Day five

Spend today basking in the sunshine, or join our full-day optional excursion to Nice. Stroll on the famous Promenade des Anglais, or perhaps join the sun-worshippers on the beach. On your return, enjoy a stop in Antibes, with its narrow streets, and experience views from the Cap d'Antibes.

Day six

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.
